Personality Disorders and Criminal Behavior
Personality Disorders and Criminal BehaviorSelect one of the personality disorders discussed in Chapter 4 (i.e., odd or eccentric personality disorders, dramatic personality disorders, anxious or fearful personality disorders, or antisocial personality disorder) and locate two to three scholarly articles in the Ashford Library that discusses a link between that personality disorder and the development of criminal behavior. In your paper, discuss the diagnostic characteristics of the personality disorder, the etiology of the disorder (the causes of the disorder, when it first manifests, etc.), and how the characteristics of the disorder have been linked to future criminal behavior. Discuss early warning signs, assessment methods, and treatments that can be used to manage the disorder. Is it possible to treat the disorder before criminal tendencies develop?
The paper must be two to three pages in length and formatted according to APA style. In addition to the textbook, you must use two to three scholarly resources from the Ashford University Library to support your claims. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and on the reference page. For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar, in your online course.
